Newspaper Article 1999 – Beloved Goldie Returns


A Charles Goldie painting on loan to the Hastings District Council since 1976 has been returned after a two-year absence while it toured.

The painting of Wiremu Tamehana was part of the Goldie exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the New Zealand painter’ death. It toured to Auckland, Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington and Sydney.

Tamehana was an identity in his day but is not to be confused with Wiremu Tamihana, king-maker and Ngati Haua chief. The painting belongs to a private collector and Hastings Mayor Jeremy Dwyer (pictured) says he is thrilled to have it back.

“Having this painting in my office has been a very special part of my time as mayor and I am very grateful to the owners for their generous loan,” he said.
